Children’s Sensory Garden
At P.S. 255 @ 151Q we have a Children’s Sensory Garden that was started in 2009.
Every year the students plant and maintain their garden. It is also used for various activities during the school year, such as scarecrow contest, pumpkin patch, and egg hunts for the students. Classes go out and use it for plant study and storytime.
It is a wonderful multisensory experience for our students that they really enjoy!
At our site we also have the Girls Club and Recorder classes.
